Cinema At Shady Rest Country Country Club

Easter Parade has been deemed “The Happiest Musical Every Made.” Take a step back in time to 1912 and join the Historical Society on Wednesday March 27th for this 1948 Classic starring Fred Astaire and July Garland. When Don Hewes loses his partner Nadine to the allure of a solo career, the acclaimed dancer spots lovely chorus line performer Hannah and pledges to form her into Nadine’s equal with a year. Can he and Hannah be ready in time for the big Fifth Avenue Easter Parade? Through song and dance, this Classic Masterpiece is entertainment not to be  missed!! We are very excited to present this first movie experience for our members and for everyone in our communities. The “movie theatre” opens at 7:15PM in time for people to get their popcorn and water and find their seats as opening credits begin promptly at 7:30PM. The movie is an hour and half long so there will be a chance for intermission. The seats are just folding chairs so people are advised to bring a seat pad for comfort. And since we are so close to Easter, we encourage people to come in their Easter outfits, or at least wear or bring an Easter hat. The Historic Society will have a table of antique Easter hats on display. Those interested can share stories about their outfits and we can even do our own Easter Parade if inspired! Our Master of Ceremonies and the brainstorm for this cinema is none other than our own member Glenn Mongold. He and his wife have been residents of Scotch Plains for 15 years and have raised their 3 children here. Glenn has been very active as a Cub Scout Leader and in the Knights of Columbus at St. Barts. He presently works for Konica Minolta.

As always, we will have refreshments and fellowship following our delightful movie on Wednesday,March 27th at the Shady Rest Country Club, 820 Jerusalem Rd. (at the corner of Plainfield Avenue) in Scotch Plains. For questions, please email Info@HistoricalSocietySPFNJ.org or call 908/322-6700 Extension 230.
